Hand Hygiene Compliance Monitoring Systems Market By Technology (Activity Or Group Monitoring, RTLS Or Individual Monitoring, Direct Observation Apps, Others), By Location (Hospitals & Ambulatory Care Centers, Clinics And Care Centers, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Landscape, 2018-2026

Industry Outlook

A large range of hand hygiene monitoring systems are being made available in the market to help healthcare facilities and associated locations to reduce the risk of healthcare associated infections. These monitoring systems are designed to examine healthcare environment, educate and remind personnel of hand washing events and provide relevant data to drive accurate and precise compliance. While the market penetration of hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems is relatively low than the hand hygiene products, more and more healthcare providers are showing interest in adopting these systems. Moreover, it is opined that the demand for these systems will be peculiarly high in acute care settings. It is also believed that the present adoption rate and growth of the market will continue to further grow as more healthcare providers will opt for these solutions to combat the threat of hospital acquired infections.

The use of electronic monitoring systems present with an automatic, efficient and innovative monitoring alternative to direct observation, therefore helping in driving the true improvement in the area of hand hygiene compliance. Employment of evidence-based electronic measurement has become amply available in the market for continuous and accurate monitoring of hygiene compliance and deliver optimum feedback to healthcare workers and decision makers. Use of electronic hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems also assist in efficient audit of hand hygiene, create new standards, reduce the risk of infections, improve patient outcomes and ultimately reduce healthcare costs.

"RTLS and activity or group monitoring to be the most prevalent monitoring technologies"

Monitoring of hand hygiene compliance and offering healthcare staff with desired and appropriate feedback regarding their performance are viewed as the integral elements of hand hygiene improvement programs in multidisciplinary settings. Observation analysis performed by trained individuals is currently viewed as the gold standard method for ensuring steady compliance rates. However this method is time consuming and highly prone to error, particularly in large healthcare facilities. Therefore, monitoring of hand hygiene product consumption is also viewed as a useful source of information with respect to the frequency of hand hygiene. Electronic devices placed in hand hygiene product dispensers offer precise information about the frequency of use over time. However, this method is fruitful only in small scale settings with limited number of employees and lesser avenues for observing hand hygiene practices. Electronic hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems utilize wireless systems for monitoring of room entry and exit and other movements of healthcare workers and their rate of use of hand hygiene products. This offers individual and unit-based data on hand hygiene compliance with common indications. This practice also assists in educating, training and adherence of healthcare workers. Some of such systems use tags or badges to the healthcare workers with real-time reminders for hand cleaning during entry and exit from patient rooms and other divisions. Studies also suggest that proper deployment of electronic hand hygiene compliance systems are associated with better hand hygiene compliance and therefore will be more acceptable to caregivers. Though there are several questions with respect to the accuracy, practicality, cost and eventual impact of these systems of compliance, these solutions have a phenomenal promise for improving the hand hygiene practices and improve health outcomes for both patients and healthcare workers.

"Hospitals is the Largest Usage Area of Hand Hygiene Monitoring Systems"

At present hospitals form the largest usage area for hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems. Larger inpatient settings, multidisciplinary areas, and higher need for ensuring hand hygiene to curb the risk of healthcare associated infections form the key factors supporting the dominance of this segment. Other additional factors characterizing this segment are larger number of healthcare workers moving in these facilities and greater affordability to install expensive monitoring systems. However, it is observed that hospitals are still apprehensive to adopt electronic monitoring partially due to higher reliance on direct observation for many years. Transition from this prevailing model is difficult, but the major issue of handling the risk of healthcare associated infections, increasing costs of treating such patients, lengthening patient stay has urged healthcare administrations seeking new methods of compliance. Acute care settings are the prime area where efficient deployment of hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems will be highly beneficial. Another factor that is challenging the adoption of these solutions in hospital settings is the overarching issue that installation of electronic monitoring will make the healthcare workers feel that they are being constantly watched and they may be penalized for poor compliance. Improving awareness in such groups will enhance the penetration of these solutions in the global markets.
